Darryl Carter Gets Neutral Paint Right.

For extra help with paint colors, and especially those chosen by famed local interior designer, Darryl Carter, check out Benjamin’s Moore’s feature on Darryl’s six color categorys. He plays it safe with these selections, but very room can be enhanced by one of those listed. His love of clean neutrals as wall colors – for the right spaces – sets him apart from the rest of the pack. White really is a color people. Get painting.

Virginia is for *Fall* Lovers.

virignia

Looks like my good ‘ol home state of Virginia is stepping up to the Things-To-Do plate and giving it’s residents and visitors some worthwhile attractions at it’s website www.virginia.org/fall. From food festivals, scenes drives, wine festivals, apple picking, pumpkin patches and crazy mazes, looks like anyone can fall in love with the state of Virginia when the cool air settles in. For an up to date report on the changing leaves, call the Fall foliage hotline at 1-800-424-love. Awwww.

Sweet Words. And a Malbec.

Yesterday, we did some winery hopping with my cousin and his lovely wife Mia. While we were at the tasting counter, my sweetheart leaned over and made his own tasting note on my paper. He never fails to put a smile on my face {and a flutter in my heart}. xo

Yes. This Just Happened.

I was posting a comment to another WordPress user’s blog and this is what it spit back at me… really. Maybe that’s a hint that I really should slow down. And take a breath every once in a while. Geez.

Not Your Standard Red or White. Wild Wine Glasses!

Thanks to blogger Lailah of Chiquero for her post on the experimental wine glasses Calici Caratteriali. Created by Gumdesign for the Abitami show in Milan, these unique spins on the traditional wine glasses has me yearning for another Virginia winery play date {thank you again Brian and Mia!}.
